We have recently discovered an issue with the latest update to our installed PV capacity data which has affected our historic estimates of installed PV capacity and therefore our historic PV_Live results. The issue does not affect the latest real-time results.
We have temporarily removed all results prior to 2017-01-01 whilst we rectify the issue and recalculate historic results.
Please feel free to contact us with any queries.
